Top tips for renting a car in Bologna

  • The beautiful city of Bologna has plenty to offer, from museums to the scenic Old Town and the breathtaking Italian landscape. With a rental car, you will have the great opportunity to explore every dream destination without having to rely on unpredictable and often delayed public transport or expensive cabs. Also bear in mind that the attractions in Bologna are spread out all over the city and, therefore, are most conveniently reached by car.
  • Head directly to the rental car agencies located at Bologna Airport to pick up a car upon arrival in the Italian city. The desks are located in the terminal at ground floor level and include international companies like Europcar, Hertz, or Sixt, plus multiple Italian agencies. Driving via the Tangenziale Nord di Bologna, travelers will be inside the city in about 20 minutes.
  • Italians have a reputation for driving rather aggressively and not adhering to street regulations, but by driving defensively and paying extra attention when entering the city, there should be no problems. Always adhere to the speed limits, as the police specifically like to fish out tourists and fines can be hefty. Turn signals are sparingly used in Italy; in roundabouts, drivers often do not signal when leaving it, but rather use their left blinker to indicate they are still staying inside, which can be confusing at first.
  • Bologna is among the cities which operate ZTL (zona traffico limitato), which means traffic is regulated in some areas and cars may not enter at specific times, usually between 7 am and 8 pm every day. There are traffic cameras in place that scan all cars, and entering a zone at the wrong time without a registered plate can lead to fines. Ask your hotel or rental car provider about the limited zones and make sure not to enter them.

  • Book your rental car in Bologna at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • On average a rental car in Bologna costs C$ 313 per week (C$ 45 per day).

  • On average a rental car in Bologna costs C$ 1,341 per month (C$ 45 per day).

  • Italian cities are very old and have many narrow lanes, which is why a compact car like a Fiat 500 is a good choice for cruising through the city when not so much space is needed. Such a small car will also require less gas, which is quite expensive in Europe, and will also fit into more parking spaces.

  • Speed limits are in km/h and must be adhered to at all times – even if other cars go faster. 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed inside the city, unless otherwise indicated, and 90 km/h (56 mph) is allowed on rural roads (unless the road conditions are not good). On the highways, drivers can speed up to 130 km/h (80 mph) -- and remember to stay in the right lane, as the left one is used only for passing.

  • Gas is quite pricey in Italy and the average liter of gas costs around €1.63 (or $1.86, which is $7.44 per gallon). Gas stations alongside the highway tend to be more expensive and stations inside the city often close at 10pm, so bear that in mind and refill ahead of time. Also note that usually you pay inside the station at the counter after the refill, and cards are widely accepted.

  • Street parking in Bologna is possible around the historic center (which is a ZTL and only people with a permit can enter) and is metered by the hour. It is advised to either choose from parking lots close to the historic center or ones further outside of the city.
